Show your support for the 6-speed shift stick with this revved up tie that's sure to shift your dress shirt into high gear. This original illustration is based on a Volkswagen GTI shift knob.
High-quality, water-based inks are hand-silkscreened onto polyester microfiber, so no harmful solvents are required to keep your ties looking crisp. The fine-weave microfiber is a rich, sturdy, yet soft fabric. Handscreened in Detroit, Michigan.
